The group comprises the Tai Tam Upper and Byewash Reservoirs, Tai Tam Intermediate and Tai Tam Tuk Reservoirs, which were built in 1889, 1904, 1907 and 1917 respectively. They have a total storage capacity of nine million cubic metres (1,900 million gallons). The Quarry Bay Extension was previously the catchment area of the Tai Koo Sugar Factory reservoirs. With the advent of modern city development, the reservoirs are being reclaimed for recreational use.
